It felt like a lovely bit of serendipity that Mila Kunis released an inspiring piece about pushing back against misogyny in the entertainment business, and shortly afterwards, inspiring new visuals for the Wonder Woman movie were released. Women are taking a stand, on the screen and in real life.

When I first began researching this topic, I was shocked to discover that we still don't have equal pay for men and women. It wasn't ignorance behind my incorrect understanding, it was the fact that I thought that in this decade, we had come past that challenge at the very least.

Motherhood is often treated as something we can do on the side, while we keep charging ahead with our preconceived plans about what other parts of our lives will look like. The thing is, none of us actually know what we're getting into. We are out of our minds to think that caregiving and child rearing are invisible, background and secondary.

One tweet that I wrote two years ago got me into the office of a C-suite executive and launched one of the most important relationships in my business today. I could have set up my meeting with her the old-fashioned way -- but Twitter helped me bypass potential obstacles and removed hierarchical barriers. Establishing yourself as a thought leader on Twitter can give you an edge.

Although the campaign execution and commitment to girls is grand, I was disappointed that of all the words chipping away at our self-esteem everyday, that "bossy" was being sentenced to exile by powerful and recognized women. Unfortunately for all of us, banning words only mutes the systemic and cultural norms that are actually responsible for social inequalities.

Believe me, I get it the message behind Sheryl Sandberg's "Ban Bossy" campaign. I get the importance of empowering girls to speak up and follow their leadership talents all the way to the top, baby. What I'm saying is, it shouldn't be an excuse to allow bitchiness off the hook.

In just a few short decades, the workplace has radically changed. Today, women constitute nearly half of the workforce. There have never been so many women in leadership positions around the world. And there has never been so much talk about being a woman in business. In fact, there has never been a better time in history to be a woman.

The best mentoring relationships happen organically, where you click and connect with someone else. There has to be some chemistry. You need to like and respect each other. You need to enjoy spending time together. When you are "matched" by someone else that element is not always there.

Where Is Sheryl Sandberg's Advice for Women in Politics?

Like many other 30-something women, I've started reading the latest treaty for the working gal, Sheryl Sandberg's Lean In. I'm now among the ranks of those who admire Sandberg's ability to leave the office on time and her gutsiness in contributing to a much-needed discussion on how North American's can better balance work and life so both men and women are better equipped to take on leadership roles if they want to. One area where this discussion is sorely needed is politics, an arena that Sandberg -- an advisor to former US Treasury Secretary Larry Summers -- largely ignores in her book.
